Qatar Fund has announced in a tweet that it has signed an agreement with the World Food Programme for a flexible multilateral core contribution of US$10 million, supporting humanitarian operations to address critical food security needs.
The agreement is a continuation to fulfill the pledges of the State of Qatar to finance basic resources worth $500 million to support United Nations organizations, which was announced during the 2018 Doha Forum.
His Excellency Khalifa Al-Kuwari, Director General of QFFD said, “Today, the world is facing the imminent threat of famine in many parts of the world and there are more than 800 million people suffering from chronic hunger."
He added, "It is critical to support efforts to increase food security in communities to provide a decent and stable life for those most in need around the world."
H.E. Khalifa Al-Kuwari also highlights the role of the partnership between Qatar Fund and World Food Program in reducing hunger and contributing to Sustainable Development Goal 2, which focuses with ending hunger.
Mr. David Beasley, WFP Executive Director, Said: “On behalf of the United Nations World Food Programme, I would like to thank the Qatar Fund for Development for its timely and generous contribution to WFP’s Immediate Response Account."
